Enterprises across the UK, France and Germany are rapidly adopting tablet-only models of business computing, a new study has found.
According to International Data Corporation (IDC), around two in five enterprise users (40 per cent) use a tablet as their sole business device today.
Most of these are individuals who conduct their duties on the road, although an impressive 38 per cent of executives have also retired their desktop and laptop computers in favour of tablets, the study showed.
Moreover, the percentage of tablet-only users increases significantly when so-called convertibles – SSD-based, touchscreen devices with detachable keyboards – are counted in the equation.
Marta Fiorentini, a senior research analysis for IDC EMEA Personal Computing, said that as more business processes go digital, the technology industry should expect “an increase in the share of standalone tablets, as confirmed by the purchase intentions of the study respondents”.
The emergence of a tablet-only workforce may introduce new difficulties when data loss occurs, with SSDs presenting a different set of data recovery challenges to regular hard drives.
It is wise to choose a data recovery company who has a track record in recovering from the type of data loss you have experienced.
